Post Office in South Moor moving
THE Post Office in South Moor, near Stanley, is to be moved 200m.
It is moving from 267 Park Road to the nearby Nisa store to give customers extended opening hours.
The move is part of major modernisation programme across the Post Office network designed to make it easier to do business.
It will mean the Post Office can offer services seven days a week in modern newly refurbished premises.
Post Office regional network manager Suzanne Richardson, said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in South Moor and we are confident that this new modern Post Office will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.
“The modernisation is part of a major investment programme to convert the Post Office network to new-style branches and this investment, the largest in the history of the Post Office, makes a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”
The current branch will close at 5.30pm on Thursday January 30 with the new branch opening at 1pm the day after.
It will then be open from 7am-10pm Monday to Sunday.
